Beautiful, exquisite Lady Head Vases

Many of the most desirable head vases feature fancy hats, realistic facial features, and even pearl necklaces with matching dangle earrings adorning them. Some even have a shapely hand with painted nails delicately framing one side of the face.

Who was Josef of Josef Originals

Muriel Joseph was originally a producer of Lucite jewelry under the name of Muriel of California until the outbreak of World War II. Unfortunately for Muriel Lucite was needed for the war effort, mainly for airplane windshields, which forced Joseph to search for a new product material. For a few years she continued to make jewelry, now with ceramic, before coming to the idea of designing and creating ceramic figurines. Muriel’s fiancé, Tom George, returned home to California at the end of the war unable to find work, so he focused on helping his wife’s business by making molds of Joseph’s models. The two married and in 1946 began producing ceramic figures under the name Josef Originals. The spelling of the name was meant to be “Joseph,” but the printer made a mistake on the first set of labels ordered. As it was too late to reprint the labels, this error gave birth to the name “Josef Originals”.
